These pictures are from a visit we made to Mount St Helen's last summer.  It was a beautiful day but the view of the top was obscured by cloud cover.  No matter!  I started the layout with this chipboard sunburst - like the one I wish had been shining a little brighter during my visit!  I backed it with some beautiful yellow paper from the kit and stacked it on top of the "Travel" embellishment.

I used a pre-cut yellow tag from the kit as a backdrop to this picture of me in front of the penny pincher machine.  It fit perfectly inside the little chipboard frame! The main photo got dressed up with a ribbon and another mini chipboard frame...holding my Mount St. Helen's penny!  All those beautiful tags are the perfect place for some hidden journaling and extra pictures - plus they are also just a great design element!

No I am not going to share the details, but I did end up in a lake and I just decided to "Enjoy" the memory!

Off the Page with Alicia

Good morning Quick Quotes readers, Alicia blogging today. I have an altered chipboard letter I made for my step son. He graduated this year, I hope he takes this to college with him.

I started by choosing my paper.  Then I traced the K on the back of the paper I choose.  I turned my K upside down so that my template came out correctly.  After cutting my K out of the paper I chalked up all the edges of the chipboard with Navy PowderPuff Chalking Ink.  I suggest doing this after tracing your template since you the chalk may take a minute to dry on the chipboard. 

The fun part was cutting a bunch of gears out of various papers and chalking them up with coordinating inks. I added the brads to the center and adhered to my paper K. There were some with gear holes too big for the brads. I just added the brad to the paper then taped the gear down around it.  

Next, I used a combination of adhesives for adhering the paper to the chipboard K. I used mostly tape, some glue dots under the brads and a bit of liquid glue just along the edges to make sure the paper didn't come up. I find using too much liquid glue can leave wrinkles and bumps sometimes when drying.  

Here are some close ups of my gears:

I die cut some chipboard with my easel die to make this guy stand up. Finally, one sweep around with my Navy PowderPuff Chalking Ink to give it all a finished look.

Farmhouse Page Tutorial with Connie

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using the Farmhouse Collection by Quick Quotes.   I thought the patterns and colors, in the papers, were perfect for my Dad's birthday pictures.

I started by using a punch to create the large scalloped circle design from the Farmhouse paper.

I shaded  the edges of the scalloped circle with Seabrook PowderPuff Chalk ink. The dark blue Farmhouse paper was shaded with Navy PowderPuff Chalk inks.

The next step was creating the scalloped borders, using a scallop border punch, and then shading them.

After the border strips are shaded, they go above and below the photos.  Add the title and cluster embellishments below the photos.

Quick Quotes Products Used:
Farmhouse: 106, 107 and 105
Farmhouse Chipboard Die Cuts
PowderPuff Chalk inks: Coal Miner, SeabrookNavy and Light Moss.

Ridiculously Happy with Martha

Hello dear friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you another creation with the new paper collections.

In today's project I am using papers from Earth Wind Fire and Honeycomb. Take a look at my card:


Creating this card was a simple process:
  1. Cut the card base using Very Vanilla card stock. The size is 4-1/4"x11" with score in 5-1/2".
  2. Cut a second layer using Earth Wind Fire 111 paper. The size is 4-1/4"x5-1/2" and paste over the front of the base card using a snail adhesive.
  3. Using a cross stitched framelits from different sizes, cut three circles using different colors and designs of paper. In my sample I used the blue side of Earth Wind Fire 111 paper for the circle of the middle, Earth Wind Fire 108 paper for the circle of the bottom and Honey Comb 105 paper for the upper circle.
  4. Stamp the sentiment over the big circle using PowderPuff Chalk Ink Navy
  5. Stamp the leaves over the same circle using PowderPuff Chalk Ink Green Leaf and PowderPuff Evergreen.
  6. Stamp the flowers over a piece of paper Honey Comb 105 using PowderPuff Mahogany, Barn Board and Desert Sun and cut them in silhouette with scissors.
  7. Arrange the circles over the card and paste the two first circles using snail adhesive. Paste the bigger circle using zapdots or dimensionals.
  8. Paste the flowers using glue dots.

The stamp set that I used in this card is a new set from Stampin Up called Love & Affection and I really love these flowers because you can combine the inside designs and colored inside if you like it.

Page Inspiration with Alicia

Hi Quick Quotes readers, Alicia here today to host the blog for you.  
I am having so much fun playing with the newest Quick Quote collections: Honeycomb, Urban Oasis collection (coming soon) and the Earth Wind and Fire collection available exclusively at the Quick Quotes Private Reserve and Quick Quotes Mini Reserve events this fall. 
I have used some of these new papers to create a layout of a bike riding adventure with my son.

I began with a stencil and some Barn Board PowderPuff Chalking Ink. I moved the stencil around in random areas and taped off areas of the stencil to give a peek a boo effect with the bricks.

I also chalked up some grunge board letters with Navy PowderPuff Chalking Ink. I added some brads and flair. I love the font and size variations in the title, it makes it fun and interesting.

June Club Q with Susie

Hello and welcome! Susie here today to share a layout I created using the June Club Q kit.

If you like happy colors, fun patterns with a relaxed feel and amazing chipboard embellishments then this is the kit for you!

The 3 large blocks of patterned paper I used in the center of the layout come pre-cut. In fact almost all of the elements I used on this layout come pre-cut, which makes it super easy to create! I arranged them to my liking and then started layering.  Tags in the back and pre-cut frames on top.

The kit is packed with words and shapes in chipboard and colorful paper! Some of the frames are designed to layer with the chipboard on the bottom and a slightly smaller paper one on top. Don't you just love the little banner in the corner? "A" is for Adventure!

I inked the edges of the layout and the main blocks of paper using the Navy PowderPuff Chalking Ink.

Weaving and Inking with Gabriela

Hi everyone, Gabriela here and today I'm doing a scrapbook layout using some paper weaving, misting and inking.

I am scrapping a photo from Wizard World that includes a very brightly colored monster, so I wasn't afraid to mix patterns and colors here. I did my misting first and then used a heat tool to help it dry, it will curl a little, but once you have this in a page protector for a few days it will flatten itself.

I've used cut strips of paper and coordinating PowderPuff Chalk Ink for my photo.  You could use different collections and colors to get a completely different look.

Check out my video below:

I think you could change just a few elements on the page and use this layout for lots of occasions/themes. 

Quick Quotes Products Used:
49 Shades of Grey - 101, 105
Whistlin Dixie - 100, 105
PowderPuff Chalking Inks - Lemon Sorbet, Pixie Pink

I hope it inspired you to "lift" this page and gave you another idea for how to use your PowderPuff Chalk Inks, thanks for stopping by.
